suffers from arthritis or joint pain knows exactly what i'm talking about. i bet most of you believe that once that pain starts, it just gets worse and worse, right? >> audience: right. >> wrong. there are foods that contain hidden nutrients that can give your body the tools it needs to help fight the effects of arthritis and joint pain. this nutriblast contains the vitamin c brothers-- lemon and lime-- the anti-inflammatory enzyme bromelain, found in grapefruit and pineapple, apples with their malic acid, which cuts right into arthritis, the anti-inflammatory omega-3 inside the flax seeds, and my personal favorite, turmeric. turmeric is probably the most powerful anti-inflammatory food you can find in your local grocery store. you ready to try this? >> woman: yes. >> you just make and you drink. so easy. so let's give it a try. >> woman: o.k. >> wow, that's powerful. i don't know if you guys know this, but both my parents are medical doctors. my mom told me that health is our greatest asset. >> woman: absolutely. >> so, let's toast to the best health ever-- cheers. >> bravo. >> chee
to discourage you from making bets that distort the market. for the rest of us, i don't see a downside, ed. >> how would we make a determination? because you know they would come back and say oh, this is really going to hurt the economy. how would this hurt the economy? >> i don't see how discouraging speculation, which is almost all done with borrowed money. they effectively borrow money at a rate of 30 to 1. you put 3% down and borrow the rest of the money. i don't see how this hurts the economy. and if we reduce this volatility and reduce market distortion, we can get back to having a market focused on investments that create production in the future and wealth in the future, not creaming the market today through speculation. >> quickly, you think this is something congress could embrace? >> not probably in this congress in the house, but i think this is an idea. it's been around for 80 years. we may well see come about, ed, and hopefully we. we need speculators, but we don't want them to be overwhelming the market. >> all right, david cay johnston, thank you for your time on the "ed sh
, in michigan they appear to be just warming up. michigan is my bet for actually doing this thing that most of republican america is now too embarrassed to go ahead with. michigan is not like the other states anymore. what will not work anywhere else, they think work there's. so what if the silverdome room is in tatters or if voters reject a law or if others in states are too embarrassed to turn democracy into a fist for a fistfight. do they get embarrassed? or do they just get on with it? now that we finally got national attention to this scheme, now we are about to find out just how much of a honey badger michigan republicans really are. in america today we're running out of a vital resource we need to compete on the global stage. what we need are people prepared for the careers of our new economy. by 2025 we could have 20 million jobs without enough college graduates to fill them. that's why at devry university, we're teaming up with companies like cisco to help make sure everyone is ready with the know-how we need for a new tomorrow. [ male announcer ] make sure america's ready. make su
on your own. in michigan, they appear to be warming up. my bet for actually doing this thing that most of republican america is too embarrassed to go ahead with. not like the other states anymore. what doesn't work there they think work there. so what if the silverdome roof is tattered. or if they are too embarrassed to turn democracy into another fist? does even an avalanche of public shaming embarrass republicans? do they get embarrassed or do they just move on with it? now we are about to find out how much of a honey badger michigan republicans really are. and chantix helped me quit. i honestly loved smoking, and i honestly didn't think i would ever quit. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. it put me at ease that you could smoke on the first week. [ male announcer ] some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right awa
against it. 49 republicans voted for it. i bet you in those 49 are the votes you're going to need for meaningful gun control. and so a lot will be up to john boehner. will he let republicans who are like the republicans in new york who voted for this vote the views of their constituents or will he impose the views of come up for a vote? >> what do you think the white house's assessment is of that what you just laid out? what do you expect from president obama tomorrow in terms of a balance between things he can do himself and things he would need congress to do? >> well, he is going to do as much as he can to enforce existing law and do things through executive orders. no, the gun owners don't have to fear he is not going to take guns away through executive orders. it's that fear, that paranoia being spread by the nra and others. but he is going to take executive action. but i think he is going to propose a very robust plan from everything i hear, including an assault weapons ban. that seems to be the measure that has the most difficulty. one of the things i think they're going to
in the case of senator hagel is no sure bet, but if they are all confirm, this will be the first time that there are three vietnam combat veterans in the cabinet. the expiration of vietnam as an american political issue -- and the expiration of the issue of vietnam service for american political leaders, that expiration date has been prematurely proclaimed for decades now. when bill clinton in 1992 won the presidency, despite having not served in vietnam, and his opponents trying to use that against him, it was said at the time that the vietnam era in american politics was finally over. that of course came as news 12 years later when george w. bush was running against john kerry in his reelection effort, and it was clear that the vietnam era was definitely not over. in 2008, when we had a vietnam prisoner of war hero running against a democrat who was too young to have served in vietnam, even if he had wanted to, we once again heard that the era of vietnam and vietnam's relationship to american political leadership was something that was over. hey, it's not over. and we shouldn't expe
bet. >> thanks for joining us tonight. have you ever heard of the vix? it's spelled v-i-x for volatility index. it's sometimes called the fear index. vix is a numerical index of volatility and fear in the stock market. it tells us in chart form, in numerical form how these guys are feeling, if they get spooked by their bosses, clients, horoscopes, whatever. if they start trading like crazy people for whatever reason, the vix goes up. it registers fear. what causes the vix to spike typically is news about the economy. actual real-world events. this, for example, is what happened to the vix on october 24th, 2008, that big red arrow there. that's when the stock market crashed in '08, one of the worst days of the great recession, record high vix. another spike happened may 20th, 20 2010 when there was sudden new that is europe's economy was even in worse shape than we thought. it spiked at a two-year high august 8th, 2011, when the u.s. credit rating got downgraded. republicans in congress threatened to default on our national debt and credit rating got downgraded. wall st
. and frankly, i wouldn't bet against them. this could be very, very effective as he tries to get his agenda going and maintain it. but make no mistake, we are dealing here and the country is dealing with and the republicans are dealing with a somewhat different barack obama. you could feel it today. it's been coming for some days, i think, that in the first term he was yes, sometimes timid, trying to be conciliatory. now in the way he has turned today and said give me a moment, i want to take in this view again, because i'll never see this again, he now sees this four years is going to decide what history says about what he did as president. he is already a historical figure, the first person of color to become a president and then be reelected as president, obviously. but now he is talking about what the history is going to say of what he actually accomplished in his eight years in office. and let's pray to god he does have the eight years in office. a recent columnist "the new york times" said -- asked the question are we now looking at the democratic party's equivalent of ronald reagan a
is paying attention, and i bet he is, he knows the nra stands very much alone in this country in opposing universal background checks for buying a gun. the last cbs news/"new york times" poll showed that nine out of ten americans, 92% support universal background checks for buying a gun. among nra members, his own members, 86% believe that anybody buying a gun should have to undergo a background check. which is why wayne lapierre does not want to answer a straight question about it. 86% of my members want this, but i'm against it because i'm a -- hey, nice tie. let's move on. after the president unveiled the administration's list of proposed reforms related to gun violence, the conventional wisdom was, and still is to a great extent, ah, this is doomed. there is no way any of this can get done. but pressure, public pressure is working in certain corners of the gun policy debate. and one of those corners may end up being specifically universal background checks, the centerpiece of what the president has proposed there is consensus building in washington that outside of the fringiest fringe
by and it's at 60 or 61, then i would not be betting the farm that the house will pass this deal 24 hours from now. >> all right. chuck todd and everyone else, please stand by. we will be back in a moment with continuing coverage of the apparent deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. you are watching msnbc, the place for politics. sometimes what we suffer from is bigger than we think ... like the flu. with aches, fever and chills- the flu's a really big deal. so why treat it like it's a little cold? there's something that works differently than over-the-counter remedies. prescription tamiflu attacks the flu virus at its source. so don't wait. call your doctor right away. tamiflu is prescription medicine for treating the flu in adults and children one year and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing. have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescen
at times like this. andrea mitchell, thank you as always. >> you bet. >> talking about tammy baldwin there, one of the things that has been interesting to watch with the chuck hagel nomination in particular, a lot of the criticism you might expect from the left toward chuck hagel has been silenced or has at least gotten a little bit quieter as the criticism from the right has gotten louder. we are in an enemy of my enemy kind of moment right now, which makes for some kind of bad strategic thinking. that's coming up. ad battery, need a tow or lock your keys in the car, geico's emergency roadside assistance is there 24/7. oh dear, i got a flat tire. hmmm. uh... yeah, can you find a take where it's a bit more dramatic on that last line, yeah? yeah i got it right here. someone help me!!! i have a flat tire!!! well it's good... good for me. what do you think? geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. stress sweat is different than ordinary sweat. it smells worse. get 4x the protection against stress sweat. introducing new secret clinical strength stress res
royaling the clinton white house. and yeah, president clinton was ahead. but it was not a sure bet in 1996. and so rolling toward that election, at the end of the summer, 1996, the nominating conventions for both sides ended up being important, and also sort of unexpectedly entertaining. >> tradition holds that this speech be delivered tomorrow night. but president clinton asked me to speak tonight. and you can probably guess the reason why. my reputation for excitement. this is some crowd. i've been watching you doing that macarena on television. and if i could have your silence, i would like to demonstrate for you the al gore version of the macarena. [ cheering ] would you like to see it again? >> al gore's single best moment of the 1996 campaign. but the thing he referenced at the top there about the timing of his speech supposed to be tomorrow night, that ended up being really important. al gore did give his speech a night earlier than would have been normally expected based on tradition. it was the next night that bill clinton ended up giving his speech, not al gore. and overnight, in
. >> you bet. >> thanks now at home for staying with us for this hour. the 1992 presidential election. that was the election that cut short poppy bush's time in office, right? he was only a one-term president because he lost in 1992. democrats like to remember 1992 as a triumphant year for the democratic party because there was this young arkansas democratic governor bill clinton unseating an incumbent republican president. the uncomfortable part of that memory for democrats is that even though bill clinton did beat president bush in 1992 he did so with only 43% of the vote. bill clinton got 43% of the vote that year. president bush got 37% of the vote. and even though it is always a bad idea to do math on television, this one isn't that hard. if you add up 43 and 37 you do not get anywhere near 100% of the vote. what happened to the rest of the vote? the wacky thing about the 1992 election in terms of thinking about american binary red versus blue party politics is that another guy who ran that year, a third person, got almost 20% of the vote. it was ross perot, right? giant sucking
court, any romney nominee to the supreme court realistically could be expected to be a surefire bet to vote to overturn that 40-year-old decision. when president obama leaned over to hug the rather fierce but rather small figure of 79-year-old supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg yesterday at the capitol luncheon that was filled with all the washington vips, and president obama had that moment with ruth bader ginsburg, that physical contact, that hug between that particular justice and this particular president was a very real manifestation of the consequences of this election we just had. today outside the supreme court, as they do every year on the anniversary of roe, anti-abortion groups protested, expressing their view that it should be illegal to get an abortion in this country. there were also counter protests. people and groups supporting the decision defending abortion rights. the anniversary of the row v decision at the supreme court is one of the rare places where you actually see scenes like this where you have demonstrators who are against abortion rights right alon
. >> good evening, and thank you. >> you bet. >> thanks to you at home for staying with us this hour. the 50th state in the united states is of course hawaii. 49th state admitted the year before, alaska. so those were 49 and 50. those are the last two states admitted to the union in 1958 and 1959. what was the last state admitted before then? before alaska and hawaii, the last state admitted in the contiguous united states, the last state admitted on the big part of the map? that was arizona. arizona was the 48th state. it was not admitted to the union until 1912. it just has not been a state for very long, which is maybe why it sometimes feels like arizona is still working out the kinks. but it also means that all of the oldest things about the state as a state just aren't very old at all. the first governor of the state of arizona was in office starting in 1912. only 100 years ago, right? and if you are a schoolchild in arizona, and you are treated to a school field trip to the arizona capitol museum, one of the things you'll be treated to on that field trip is the sight of the state's fir
